    I have a keg of green dot from the 1990’s when I loaded it in 20 & 28 ga. For skeet loads. I have loaded it in 45 ACP with 200 gr. cast and it performs fine in several 45’s I have. I think I was loading near 5 grains and it was accurate ! Jedman

    A friend and myself bought several cans of older IMR powders in 1 lb. cans cheap several years ago from a small gun shop. They all have the red dust in them. We laugh about it when we develop a good shooting load or shoot a deer with the stuff. We...

    koger, I had to google the Vortek to see what it was like before answering your question. From the video’s I watched it has a 4140 CM barrel but being a muzzleloader all of the pressure when firing it is in the barrel and breechplug. No back...

    Thanks Thomas , I searched the visible loader and found it was made in several model no.s 70 , 71 ..... and was a unusual design. The model 1903 Savage is much different and if I get a chance to buy it I probably will and will look at that Rem 12...

    1 in 12" twist should be no problem in the 357 mag. I have built several 45 ACP rifles and one pistol with Chaszels barrel blanks in 1 in 12 twist and they shoot 200 gr. cast Boolits very accurately. Jedman

    I have often thought of what happens to a bullet that shoots as poorly as this ? My thinking is if the bullet fits the bore, it is not seated ridiculously crooked, HOW can it leave the muzzle and fly so badly ? Iím talking with a proper twist...

    It couldn’t be the way the reamer was ground as if there were a larger diameter in the neck portion when the reamer was pulled out it would cut the portion of the neck behind the same diameter. It could have been caused by a chip but usually the...

    I have a Whitney rolling block shotgun in 18 ga. I have looked for years for a original 18 ga. shell and found 2 so far. One that was near perfect condition went for 135.00 at a online auction and I dropped out at $ 100 and the other was at a gun...

    The differences that I see right off on this action are, Scalloped sides on receiver Hammer is shaped nicer and not as tall Trigger guard looks as though it's a separate part from the receiver The breech block / hammer pins appear to be slightly...

    I do the same as country gent but if only drilling 1/8" deep I also grind a second drill bit with a nearly flat tip with relief like a endmill. You may get 1 or 2 more threads with a 48 thread tap. Jedman
